Are auto insurance companies in Canada allowed to raise rates because of an accident?
Yes they are, and the majority of time that is when they will raise rates, especially when you are at fault. If you were at-fault for the accident and had to make a insurance claim, then your rates will definitely increase, since you are a higher risk driver, and the insurance company had to pay out because of you. If you are in an accident that you were not at fault, then your rates should not increase but they might. Some companies again see this as you being a higher risk driver since you were in a accident, even if it wasn't your fault, so they will raise the rates. If this happens, I recommend switching insurance companies, as a good company should not do this. In either case your rates will not increase until your insurance is up for renewal. At which point, if they do increase I would recommend looking around and comparing prices from other companies

Which state in the US has the lowest auto insurance rates?
If you have no fault auto insurance will your insurance rates increase if you happen to be in an accident in which you were not at fault?
Generally speaking, no. However, in any moving incident/violation, your driving record is checked. If it turns out that you have a few past speeding tickets, and maybe another previous accident or two where you were not at fault, the insurance company may choose to tag you as a high-risk driver and increase your premium. On the other hand, if you are a driver with a spotless record, your rates will probably not go up in the event of an accident where you are not at fault.

What effect do speeding tickets have on auto insurance rates?
Speeding tickets have negative effects on auto insurance rates. If your insurance company learns that you frequently get speeding tickets, they will label you as someone more likely to be in an accident. This again means that they may charge you more for the insurance, and give out less in case of an accident. Or they may plainly not want to insure you.
